Organisations and businesses across Worcestershire are invited to learn about the funding opportunities available to promote entrepreneurship and support business growth.

This event is aimed at organisations, businesses, local authority officers and elected members who wish to:

  • Support new business development
  • Network and collaborate
  • Deliver projects to support new and growing businesses in Worcestershire
  • Learn from successful bidders and case studies
  • Apply for grant funding to support a new or growing business

The morning session will include information on the funding available and case studies of organisations who will share their experience of securing ERDF funding in this sector and how projects have supported Worcestershire businesses.
